    problem accessing httpSession

    Laurent Taraud Newbie



      I'm trying to access httpSession parameters from the method public void serveResource(ResourceRequest request, ResourceResponse response) throws PortletException, IOException {}


      request.getPortletSession(false).getAttribute(DATA_KEY, PortletSession.APPLICATION_SCOPE);  returns null but the data is present in the HTTPSession


      Using getAttributeNames(PortletSession.APPLICATION_SCOPE), I have only data with javax.portlet.* keys like javax.portlet.p.p_5f888a85-db04-41dd-8189-951404450bfe?beanCmpNav


      So the keys are right in the Session scope, but only attributes from the portlet scope are visible.


      How can I access to data, located in the HttpSession, to share them with HttpServlets ?






      -- using gtn 3.2.4 (eXo 3.5.3) / Tomcat 6 ---


      Note : https://community.jboss.org/message/539407 // https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/GTNPORTAL-1118 is fixed (gtn 3.1.0)

          Hi, can you give more details about how you save an get the session attribute ? Note that in this thread https://community.jboss.org/message/539407 they said that

          - The portlets are all in the same .war

          - Portlet A sets the value


          - Portlet B gets the value



          Is that the same to your case ?

            I'm using theses methods.


            Each portlet has his own War file.


            Using the debuger, I see that :

            - the portal has his own HttpSession

            - each portlet has his own HttpSession


            Thats why one portlet can't see data from an other portlet, looking at his httpSession


            Do I need to add a configuration in a file (portlet.xml, server.xml, ...) to share the same httpSession ?


            I realy need to share states and data between a lots of portlet.

            IPC are not enough because Portlet active but not displayed doesn't receive the events. The next time theses porltet would be displayed, they must be up to date.


            How can I do it ?

              As mentioned here, your problem is a result of each servlet container, or WAR, having their own HttpSession even for the same user.
